[NetBehaviour] question about a novel and "chiastic structure"

Hi all,

My book club just read Andrew Sean Greer's novel Less, which won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 2018.  It seems to use a lot of "chiastic structure," which is an A-B-B'-A' pattern used in ancient literature.  There are also some biological meanings of the term (for vision and genetics).

I'd be curious to know if anyone is aware of chiastic structure in visual arts or perhaps computer systems.

Interesting idea Ricardo about the Rethinking Humanity idea!  Will be interested to hear/see more.

All best,
